. there is some evidence to suggest but that is happening. then of course there's the obama ground war. the reasonable guess is that the obama team had four times as many ground troops as did john kerry and al gore. this was especially true in swing states. for example, john kerry had 10 field offices in new mexico, for obama had 39. and the list of the obama net route campaign activities, which we're all starting to know, is impressive in that it laid out all that they have to do in the course of the campaign. they sent out about 7000 different e-mail messages and have a list of 13 million addresses and so forth and so on. supporters received no less than 20 texts. month during the campaign, and it all seem to work and pay off. according to circle, 64% of 18- 24 year-old and 43% of 18-29 year-old were first-time voters. that helped obama. the margin of victory for those under 34 obama was 68% to 32%. john mccain received a majority of votes from those over 35. few of us were surprised to hear meghan mccain suggest the republican party was on the principles of becoming irrelevant to yo

to its nuclear program? >> it's a major victory for the obama administration, and tehran must be nostalgic for the good old days of bush. in the old days it was very hard for the u.s. administration to rally not just the europeans but also russia and china, and now clearly obama's managed to persuade them to come along with stronger policy towards iran. >> was this a surprise? >> this type of vote, especially with china voting, that was a surprise to me. the russians already indicated that, although they didn't think about the sanctions would be a good idea, they would be willin÷ to go along because they saw no other choice. but the chinese vote clearly is part of some sort of deal that obama has made with the chinese when he made his trip to china. >> and if these nations go forward to impose tougher sanctions against iran, i think the question mark had been russia and china, does the way this censure vote went imply that russia and china will go along on the whole concept of tougher sanctions? >> clearly, yes. it's no good guarantee, but it's an indication that they will. a
dinner by the obama white house. perhaps he means that's evidence enough to know that they were so-called "cleared" into the white house. apparently, they were not invited. there's very little dispute about that. the secret service has interviewed this couple, the salahis, michaele and tareq, yesterday, we understand. they may or may not be making an appearance on television in terms of an interview program. what we do know is that they are under investigation and they face potentially serious charges, although it's unclear what, if anything, is going to happen in terms of those charges, criminal charges or not. at the very least, people are talking about lying to a police officer. they snuck into the white house, they got past the first secret service uniformed officer at the southeast gate. apparently, that officer thought that the next officer would check them. they did not. there you see the result, walking in the red carpet, as it were. this is called the booksellers area of the white house, down in the basement. making their glamorous entrance. this pair of socialites here, n
that president obama was not in any danger as this virginia couple, tariq and michale salahi, they had to go through several levels of security screenings like all the guests attending tuesday's state dinner, but in a statement released just friday, the director of the secret service, mark sullivan, he says that the agency is deeply concerned and embarrassed. the statement goes on to say they should have been prohibited from entering the event entirely. that failing, he says, is our ours. clearly the review of just what happened and how these supposedly uninvited guests got into the state dinner, that will continue. fran townsend, a former homeland security adviser to president bush, says she expects to see fallout. listen here. >> at best the uniformed division of the secret service who let them onto the property will be disciplined and at worst they could potentially be fired. i will tell you, it is a very serious security breach because, after all, bad people will watch this and watch how they do it and learn, and they may test the secret service in other circumstances if not at the white
obama, and we have pictures to show that in the receiving line with the indian prime minister singh. the secret service has insisted that the president was never danger because the salahis, as well as all of the guests, had to go through different levels of security. but the agency, the director of the secret service now says that the agency is deeply concerned and embarrassed. in a statement that was released friday, the director of the secret service, mark sullivan, he goes on to say -- so, clearly, not a good day for the u.s. secret service and the investigation continues, brianna. >> and do we know anything else about the investigation, kate? >> reporter: well, right now, we know that the secret service is not ruling out the possibility of criminal charges. we also -- the last we heard was that secret service investigators were trying to sit down and speak with the salahis. according to a statement that was released, put out from this couple's attorney, this attorney says the salahis, they say they didn't crash the event, brianna. they say also they look forward to setting the r

-- i know we don't want to go there now, but analogies with the seminar that president obama is now holding more or less in public about afghanistan. here when the missile crisis came, kennedy, as ted says, pulled together a very small group in secret and for a week deliberates all the options, and everything is on the table. every issue is examined. every assumption is picked up and hooked over and thought over again. people feel comfortable to change their mientdzs quite dramatically, and for historian historians, as you know vividly because of your work, the fact that these deliberations were secretly taped, so most of the people don't know, but actually the tape was running and now we as historians can look and listen after theel fact and be a fly on the wall and hear these deliberations. i think the whole thing is quite remarkable, as kennedy, as president kennedy noted in the video that we saw. if the decision had to be made in 24 or 48 hours, i think it's quite likely a different decision would have been made, quite likely, and initially, the impulse was to attack, and the c

obama says he will go to the meeting in copenhagen and they will talk about global climate change. does the news of these dr. e- mails or the mills that talk about -- or the e-mails that talk about this, will they will -- will that hamper his efforts? guest: he is saying he could do something in copenhagen that he cannot do. if he is going to commit the united states to a carbon emissions reduction of 80%, the senate has to pass that. it is debatable whether it will pass the senate. he cannot do that. it has to pass the senate. i bet there are a lot of people in the senate who are sitting on the fans who are mad as heck that he went out in public and said the u.s. will do this. that forces them to vote on something they don't want to vote on it puts them at loggerheads with the president on a critical international issue. i don't want to predict what will happen but it will be a very, very hot in washington. host: we are continuing our discussion on climate change with patrick michaels of the cato institute. he is a senior fellow they're dealing with environmental studies. greenbelt, ma
